Well, tomorrow I'm supposed to be going to Hull for 3 days, although I really don't want to

I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions of some decent places to go, any guitar shops, etc.??

Thanks

Isn't that where Philip Larkin lived? Surely they have some kind of museum/tribute to the guy there. Go see that. Go see the library he worked in.

My advice?

Don't go. If you cannot escape the inevitable however then try and lay low. Remember don't make eye contact with the mutant population.
Yeah, now you're gonna die wearing that stupid little hat. How does it feel?

Help me to live.


I make custom guitar wiring harnesses and I'm pretty damn good at it!

Eh? Halifax is in England.

It's a famous prayer/theives thingy.

Hell - sinners burn
Hull - men aren press ganged
halifax - the infamous gibbet

I know of the prayer, it's just a funny video about Halifax in Canada. I wanted an excuse to post it

Edit: Lmao Hull has 101 chip shops.


That's complete bull****. You'll be okay.

Wait did they claim Hull To be the 'Fattest' place in the UK based on how many chip shops there are?

Well as a frequent visitor to Hull I can't disagree withe the article. And I believe the 'fattest place in the UK' bit was because of the obesity levels in the town.

Publicly announce your hatered for Grimsby and you'll be laughing.


I did something similar when talking to some Swansea fans at a service station - I gave Cardiff a slating for being scum and whatnot and I think I made some new friends

Also:

Hull is a dump. Probably not quite as bad as Stoke though.

Well you know how England is a miserable wet depressing place full of lots of psychos..well Hull is the epicenter.

In all honesty Hull is the most horrible place I've ever been too, but I don't know it well at all.

I knew Hull was boring because Larkin lived there, but I didn't think it was that bad.

Home.

This is where I want to be, but I've been told the hotel's been booked & I have to go, even though I said I didn't want to before it was booked
Maybe, if I do go, I should just stay in my room all day & night drinking excessively... Or if anyone could sort out some weed for me, it'd be appreciated

There's nothing I'd want to do there, I'm too young to legally drink (although I've passed for 18 many times before, so may not be much of an issue) & I have no friends there.

Just take a few friends, go see a film in Prince's Quay, Walk around St Stephens there's a guitar shop around there. All in the city centre of course, that's where your probably going if you're in a hotel.

and did he? He had a boring job that he liked... seems a bit grandiose to call it 'seeking the mundane'.

I was born in Hull, how different my life would be if I still lived there.


Same. I'm so glad to have escaped.

Though I didn't get much of an improvement, it was an improvement nonetheless.
